DaBaby Thanks Hot 97 & Lists Reasons They Let Him Perform At Summer Jam Published on:Aug 23, 2021, 6:34 AM by 0 East Rutherford, N.J. DaBabyhas seen his name erased from a laundry list of festivalsfollowing his controversial Rolling Loud Miami rant, but Hot 97s Summer Jam bucked the trend by allowing him to still perform Sunday night (August 22) at New Jerseys Metlife Stadium. Prior to taking the stage for his set, the Charlotte native addressed the soaked crowd draped in ponchos with a pre-recorded video thanking Hot 97 for letting him remain in the festivals lineup. He gave a few reasons explaining why he was confident taking the stage with the radio stations support. Reason No. 1, they allowed me to stay up here and share my gifts and share my blessings amongst all the chaos and all of the backlash, so hats off to yall for that. Reason No. 2, they accepted all my sincerity in all my apologies when I say I never meant to offend anybody or say anything to make anybody feel any type of way live on that stage a few weeks ago. Hot 97 was also willing to stick their neck on the line and willing go against all eyes and everything going on in the world and still allow me to come out on that stage and utilize their platform to help the world become a better place and not dismiss people based off mistakes like being human. He continued, One thing about Baby, I come to put on a show. I come to make sure everybody in the building no matter who you is to make you leave feeling better than when you pulled up. So thats what we gon do. DaBaby gives his thanks to @HOT97and lists several reasons why they let him perform tonight #SummerJam
